Perfectionist: someone who takes great pains…and gives them to others.

The Thinking Behind the Sales Tweet

Perfectionists have trouble finishing. That becomes a problem when others rely on them.

 

Leo Tolstoy

"If you look for perfection, you'll never be content."

The thicker the explanation the less absorbent the message.

If that explanation you're hearing just don't make no sense and the explanations that follow make even less sense...methinks the person doth communicate too much.

 

Alexander Hamilton

"The obscurity is more often in the passions and prejudices of the reasoner than in the subject."

 

Keep your chin up...especially when things are a pain in the neck.

Sure, change is tough.

But you gotta look on the bright side: if you don't like that last suggestion - when the urge to change gets too annoying, you can always watch a TV rerun.

Now, do you see the benefit in the power of positive thinking?

Hope is a waking dream much craved by people.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Aristotle said, "Hope is a waking dream."

People want hope; people follow dreams.

***

Regardless, Hope stands in the shadow of the elite state of mind known as Belief. If Hope is a waking dream then Belief is the inspirational call-to-action.

Forget your mistakes…right after you learn from them.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Some say, "Forget your mistakes". That's not good advice.

  1. Our brains are powerful machines, designed to remember, not to forget. Why waste brain-energy fighting the natural flow? 
  2. Invest brain-energy learning from mistakes and then celebrate that learning.
